An Encouraging Word Posted on the Elijah List by Garris Elkins

As I prayed about the coming of the year 2015, I saw an image of approaching waves. I saw wave after wave approaching our shoreline and crashing upon our nation. While many people are expecting waves of terrorism and disease to arrive, the Lord said:

"I want you to look for the other waves. Look for the waves I am sending. This is where your focus needs to be. The waves I am sending will overcome these lesser waves of fear and death and wash over your nation with the fruit of My presence."

As I heard these words, I knew that long awaited promises were about to be fulfilled.

Many unforeseen things are approaching the nations of the world at this time. Without hope, fear and panic can direct ourQuiver Flaming Arrows by Linda Harris-Iorioresponse to what is coming. It is our choice where we will focus our attention in this unique moment of human history.

When I saw the image of waves, I saw a powerful tsunami approaching the West Coast of the United States. This was not a natural tsunami, buta tsunami of answered prayers. When this tsunami struck our coastline it broke upon our nation with supernatural power.(Photo via Wikimedia)
Waves Of God's Presence To Our Nation
The same day God that revealed the image of the tsunami, I attended a worship service at Living Waters Church in Medford, Oregon. A song from Bethel Music, "You Make Me Brave", was being played by the worship team.
The presence of God was felt in the sanctuary in a very powerful way. My wife, Jan, asked me, "Did you feel what was going on in worship today?" I did sense something unusual. All day long one part of that song continued to replay in my heart. I kept hearing the lyrics:
"As Your love, in wave after wave
Crashes over me, crashes over me
For You are for us
You are not against us
Champion of Heaven
You made a way for all to enter in."
These approaching waves of God's manifest presence are working their way toward our nation because it is His heart to overwhelm us with His love. At some point in a previous seasonprayer was released that came into agreement with God's heart.

In the deep waters of the spiritual realm, the faith generated by these prayers has displaced fear and unbelief. Like a natural tsunami, this displacement has created the shift needed to birth a series of spiritual tsunamis that have been running silently in the deep waters of the spirit world toward our nation.

Natural tsunamis can travel at airliner speeds across the full span of an ocean. They remain virtually undetected as they travel through the depths of an ocean to finally meet the rising undersea geography of a continent releasing their power upon impact with the shallow coastline.
His Waves Release Destiny
In the next few weeks leading up to 2015, I feel these waves of answered prayer will arrive on our shores mounting up in a powerful demonstration of God's presence upon our nation. In a natural tsunami scenario you would run away in order to survive.When this spiritual tsunami arrives you will want to run toward it and dive headlong into its wave.
Waves of darkness and gloom have been forecast in great detail and some of these events could actually arrive on our shores, but God wants our attention to be focused on a different scenario. This is a time to stand on the shores of our culture and look with hope for what God is bringing our way. (Photo via pixabay)

Waves of terror, disease and fear do not carry our destiny. Only God's presence carries our destiny – this is where we are to focus our attention. When each of us discovers the depth of God's love for us and from that love, our individual God-birthed destiny, that discovery will begin to change the destiny of our cities and our nation. The waves of 2015 are coming to release that destiny.

WOW!! I am SO grateful for this.
I KNEW in my heart that all the doomsday stuff on the internet wasn't FOR ME.
I have come to resent (and then have to remind myself to forgive) those who are on, say , You Tube, who are ONLY getting the destruction part of the doomsday stuff.
I grew up in Eugene, Oregon and came to know the Lord during the late 1960s Jesus Movement there. I was briefly a part of the Shiloh House in Eugene. I received the baptism of the Holy Spirit in 1973. I have been in deliverance and inner healing for the last 18 years, mostly on the receiving end.
THIS PROPHECY that you've written here is IN TRUTH what God is saying to those of us who are fasting, praying, seeking HIS face, to know him, and interceding for others.
FINALLY-whew- a breath of fresh air in the Holy Spirit. I'm so grateful, and I stand on this word, that this type of Tsunami is on its way. The prayers I've prayed, for myself and for others, for deliverance and for them to finally see the Light of the World, who is Jesus, be revealed to my family and friends that I uphold regularly!!! a big AMEN BROTHER!!!!! My heart rejoices in this word and know deeply, this is the Word of the Lord concerning his own.

I am glad you were encouraged--as was I, Rebekah. As you say, we hear so much of the doomsday stuff but there needs to be encouraging words, too.

I expect there may be some hard times in the future, but I believe if that is so it will be used as the instrument to bring in a great harvest.

Thanks for leaving a comment. It encourages me to continue posting when I hear that others are benefiting. Blessings,
